New York Giants activate Travis Beckum from PUP list

Tight end Travis Beckum was last seen at Super Bowl XLVI, where he tore his anterior cruciate ligament in the New York Giants' victory over the New England Patriots.

Nine months later, Beckum is back.

Multiple sources have reported Beckum was activated to the Giants' 53-man roster Saturday from the physically unable to perform list. To clear room for Beckum, New York waived guard Mitch Petrus.

ESPN's Chris Mortensen first reported the move.

Beckum -- a third-round pick in the 2009 NFL Draft -- returned to practice last week. Star-Ledger's Jenny Vrentas reported that Beckum took practice reps this week with the first-team offense in two tight end sets. He also worked with the top special teams groups.

The Giants might have a need at tight end with Bear Pascoe continuing to deal with an ankle injury. Pascoe is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

UPDATE: The Giants later announced that Beckum had been added to the 53-man roster.
